everything suggested above. Running updmap runs without complains (and finds
the maps for the two fonts, Frutiger and Garamond that I'm trying to
install), but pdftex will not find them. I have downloaded a fresh copy of
the fonts (which works fine on my other two machines, none of which are
running texlive though) and reinstalled everything but same result.

Any help would be most appreciated.
